8 Things Every Happy Woman Should Have

Last week, one of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes and Cashmere, featured an awesome post titled
8 Things Every Happy Woman Should Have which was inspired by the Thought Catalogue. I thought I would join in on the fun and answer with my own thoughts. 

1. A Go-To Drink
I am the biggest fan of Jalapeno Margaritas, or just spicy cocktails in general, especially after a long week of work. It usually is a rarity at most bars, but it can be found on the menu at my favorite restaurants. I'd opt for this eccentric beverage overall a glass of vino any day.

2. A Go-To Karaoke Song
Celion Dion - It's All Coming Back to Me Now
It is a crowd favorite every single time.

3. A Uniform
For those that know me, they know me by my signature look. It can be defined by the following things: My awesome big frame glasses, an outfit from either J.Crew or Madewell or a combination of both, and a love for crazy, colorful, patterned socks.

4. A Hair Stylist They Love
His name is Christian Durr and he has been cutting my hair since 2009. He did my infamous chop at the beginning of the New Year. I've followed him from salon to salon and he is simply the best. Book your appointment today @ Soon Beauty Lab in Carroll Gardens.

5. An Exercise Routine
Whether I'm on the treadmill, out in Central Park, or on the course during a half marathon, running is my vice and my favorite type of exercise routine.

6. A Hobby
I love to decorate. My bachelorette pad was my special project at the start 2013 and it continues to inspire me each and every day. I've enjoyed hunting for special gems to make my apartment truly unique and feel like the best home a girl can ask for. If I ever decide that I've had enough with corporate america, maybe this is new career path to embrace.

7. A Best Friend
Whether we are family, we met during childhood, roamed the halls of HBHS, got the 'cuse connection, bonded over our love uptown, met at Macy's, or embraced our 20s together - you all hold a very special place in my heart and I couldn't imagine my life without all of you each and every day.

8. A Healthy Sense of Self
I know I'm not perfect. 2013 has been all about sole searching and discovering who I am and the woman I want to be. I've fully embraced being me this year and learning a lot about myself. I loved creating my own manifesto back in March and I turn to it often to continue to reflect on how to maintain a healthy sense of self. After all, don't let anyone dull your sparkle.
